Types of Fellow Velo Tours

We specialise in guided cycling holidays in France.

Bespoke Tours

Our main Fellow Velo Tours are based on areas and routes that we have known, loved and cycled for years but, at roughly four times the land area of the UK, France has an enormously varied landscape and very proud regional cultures too.

If you would love to go on a cycle touring holiday in an area of France not featured on our website or for longer or shorter cycling holidays, Fellow Velo can still be your guide. Our experience of cycling through the length and breadth of France and, whether for camping tours or those with just a little more comfort, means that if you have a French cycle holiday wishlist then, we could help you to design and plan that adventure.

Following an initial discussion of the tour you would like to be developed, we would require a deposit of £50 per person to undertake the more detailed research and planning that would be needed (this sum would be deducted from any balance due, should you proceed with the full booking).

It might be for a family or a group of friends or, as a charity fundraising challenge; just contact us and we will be more than happy to help you bring a plan together.

Alternatively, you could make an exclusive group booking for one of our main Fellow Velo Tours.

•    backup support on hand for any necessary repairs,
•    the possibility of a ‘taxi’ should any little hills seem too much on the day,

Self-guided Tours

On our Self-guided Tours you benefit from;
•    a complete Fellow Velo briefing before your tour,

There are also Fellow Velo options for those with a slightly more adventurous spirit. We have some longer Fully Guided cycle camping tours which can be combined or spread over a number of holidays to complete a journey of the Length and Breadth of France. And then, we have Fellow Velo Independent.

Independent Tours

On Fellow Velo Independent Tours, we have a great tour package for each of main tour areas which you can book more flexibly throughout our touring season. You can take Independent Tours on your own bike or we can provide a link to local cycle hire for you. On an Independent Tour, you will need to transport your own luggage along the journey.
Before you arrive in France, we will provide a Fellow Velo Independent

Travel Pack with;
•    a detailed introduction to your whole tour,
•    easy to follow navigation information to help you follow your daily rides,
•    your accommodation bookings,
•    suggestions for excursions to local attractions,
•    a telephone backup contact for support and information,
•    information on cycle repair and emergency contacts along the tour route.
